It’s the fifth day of the Olympic Torch relay. Today the torch will be taken from Bristol to Cheltenham via Swindon and Gloucester. This is part of its 70 day journey around the UK before the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games in July.
Bristol has a notably hilly landscape. These steep inclines are a result of Bristol being a limestone area. Through the years this limestone was quarried and was used in the construction of many of the buildings within the city. We have a premium range of Limestone wall and floor tiles.
Cheltenham is noted for its Regency Architecture and has been described as “the most complete regency town in England.” Architects have used our tiles for a variety of different projects including hotel, restaurant and shopping centre designs.
We will provide further updates on the progress of the Olympic Torch as it makes its way through more than 1,000 Cities, Towns and Villages in the UK.
